Leon is a retired educator with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Manitoba. A teacher of Art, Advertising Art and Graphic Design, he now paints for his own pleasure, drawing upon his love of the outdoors and his years at the cottage in Northwestern Ontario to inspire his work.
A long time admirer of Tom Tompson and the Group of Seven, he paints with bold colour and at times heavy impasto as well as varied brush strokes to impart a fresh, dramatic new look to the landscapes in which he finds himself.
An avid fisherman, he carries a camera wherever he goes, always looking for that perfect moment and view which will become yet another unique and captivating work.
